The Imperials’ first love was always Gospel Music! In the midst of keeping a full concert schedule of their own, they received a call from Elvis Presley asking them to be a part of his show, along side of The TCB Band and The Sweet Inspirations. As part of his group, they also sang on many of his hits during his prime as an artist. Their association with Elvis opened many doors making it possible for them to bring the “Good News” of the Gospel to millions of people around the world via television, radio and personal appearances.
The Imperials impacted an entire generation of young people bringing a fresh new sound but an “uncompromised Gospel message” to millions of all ages.
Along the way, they won multiple Grammy Awards, Dove Awards, induction into the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame among other accolades. However, those “things” were just a vehicle to help them bring the Gospel to a larger audience and reach a lost and dying world with the message of “Eternal Life” through Jesus Christ.
